2019 MIT Beijing Symposium

Smart Cities & Emerging Technologies
October 18, 2019

Hosted by Zhongguancun Development Group

Join the MIT Industrial Liaison Program for the 2019 MIT Beijing Symposium on Smart Cities, hosted by Zhongguancun Development Group.

In order to meet the needs of an ever-growing urban population, cities must become smarter, more sustainable, and more responsive to human behavior. However, building and maintaining these smart cities requires a collaborative, multi-disciplinary approach and implementation. By utilizing machine learning, environmental design, advanced sensing technologies, and more, the city can function as a responsive space, customizable to the unique needs and values of its inhabitants. Adopting innovations within the Internet of Things and human-machine interaction, along with other disruptive technologies, will allow for the successful creation of smart cities, while also improving urban planning and design.

Hear from MIT faculty and startups to learn about their approaches to ease this urbanization and make cities more efficient spaces to live and work.
